Today I made Spicy Apple Pie.This was at Ruairi’s request as he loves apple pie. This recipe uses two different types of apples. I used a Bramley cooking apple and a Granny Smith Apple as well. The combination of both gives a delicious flavour when mixed with some spices.
|Everything all laid out, ready to start !|
I had time to make the pastry before I left for the school run, so it could chill while I was out.
Naturally my helper came back today…I think he just likes having his picture lol.

Half the Bramley’s get cooked down into a compote and the other half just added into this and given a good mix.

Then ts a matter of layering up the sliced Granny Smith apples and the compote of Bramleys and adding some mixed spice as you go. After brushing with some beaten egg the top got an extra sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.

After approx 45 mins in the oven you get a gorgeous golden delicious apple pie.
|All cooked and golden and delicious !|
Again the full recipe is listed under baking delights and please do let me know what you think if and when you try it, I’d love to hear.
Thoeria I’m just rooting out my recipe for soda bread, I seemed to have misplaced it lol. All my best recipes seem to be on scrap pieces of paper or hurriedly written onto the backs of envelopes lol.
